What are the amounts?

One basic question when working with quantities is simply, how much?

To what extent? What are the intensities? What are the ranges? What are the outliers?

Examining economic, social, and cultural rights, this could be the amount of an indicator. For example, examining fulfillment of the right to education, this could be the count of schools, of class sizes, of student enrollment, of students graduating, of functioning school furniture, etc.

Examining civil and political rights, this could be the number of incidents or victims: the number attacked, killed, or tortured, the number of prisoners, missing, or exiled.

Documenting very large-scale civil and political rights abuses can be challenging particularly across a large geographic area. Using appropriate methodologies are essential for accurate data collection, data processing, and analysis.

Data visualization provides a number of tools for exploring and interpreting quantitative data, such as setting the scales and ranges, “binning” or combining ranges of data into more managable groups, or adding interactive ways to filter data by attribute.
